BCP623 - Elk Creek Fish Pond
Elev. 1482 metres

I hadn't planned on this being my last stop today, but Mother Nature had thrown a wrench into things. A sunny spring day, though cool and blustery, was rapidly turning into rain. Though I had managed to stay ahead of the rain all day, it was now closing in. Any destination that required a hike was off the books, but as this cap was right by the roadside, and had a conveniently area to pull off, and a nearby cache to boot, well, it was a no brainer!

There was no question where the cap was. Above ground on a pipe, with nothing taller than last year's matted down grass around it, it stood out like a sore thumb. Even the missing guard post wasn't a problem. If you tried for this one in winter with a foot of snow on the ground you might have some problems locating the cap without the post, but if you're up in these parts with that much snow to deal with, I expect that you've got bigger problems than not being able to find a cap...

The cap is in fantastic shape, as is so often the case for non urban caps.

I'd no sooner finished up when the first rain drops began to land. Rather than head back down to #591 (and possibly end up tackling the twisty, narrow and steep road on Corkscrew), I headed for Rocky Mountain House on #752. The road was much nicer, but I didn't avoid the snow and rain. Still, I was happy not to have run into it on Corkscrew!

Thanks for the easy drive up cap on a nice day for drive in the country, outforthehunt. {FOUND}

infoA virtual cache is a cache that exists in a form of a location. Depending on the cache "hider," a virtual cache could be to answer a question about a location, an interesting spot, a task, etc. The reward for these caches is the location itself and sharing information about your visit.

Because of the nature of these geocaches, you must actually visit the location and acquire the coordinates there before you can post. In addition, although many locations are interesting, a virtual cache should be out of the ordinary enough to warrant logging a visit.

Virtuals are now considered waymarks on Waymarking.com.
